Four people were injured in a two vehicle accident Wednesday afternoon on Ohio 96 just west of Ohio 603 in Franklin Township that involved an entrapment.

 
Sgt. Ryan Randall of the Mansfield Post of the State Highway Patrol said the injury accident occurred at 5:03 p.m. involving  a 2003 Chevy Suburban and 1995 Ford Mustang.

Sgt. Randall said the preliminary investigation revealed that the driver of the Chevy Suburban, Christy A.  Alltop, 40, of Ashland, and her two passengers, was traveling westbound on Ohio 96 when she approached a bicyclist on the road. 

"While attempting to pass the bicyclist, the Chevy Suburban traveled left of center," Sgt. Ryan Randall said.

The Ford Mustang, driven by a 17-year-old, female from Shelby, was traveling eastbound on Ohio 96.

Sgt. Randall said the driver of the Mustang tried to avoid the Chevy Suburban but the two vehicles collided near the centerline of the road.

Alltop and a 14-year-old front seat passenger in her SUV were trapped and had to be extricated by Franklin Township Fire.

Sgt. Randall said all parties involved in the accident were transported to MedCentral Mansfield Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Alltop was cited for left of center.

Troopers were assisted at the scene by Franklin Township Fire EMS and Medic Response.

Ohio 96 was closed for just over an hour.
